Title: Torn (Whiskey Sharp #3)
Author: Lauren Dane
Stars: 3 stars
This is the second series by Lauren Dane I have read. I figured you can't judge an author by one of her many series.
The story starts off with friends who are all finding love. Cora is one of the last of the group but can't seem to find what she is looking for. The story starts off with every girls dreaming meeting their teenage crush. The story falls apart after that because it falls into the typical romance with light but ok banter, sex, sex, drama, sex, drama and that is about it.
The characters are flat, boring and the drama is predictable. The story is easily forgettable leaving readers wondering if it was worth the summer to be read pile.
Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher Harlequin Books for the advance copy of Lauren Dane Torn.
